Well I am finally getting to post my BajaRack install. I am happy that I have finally something to contribute to the forum. The instruction were great but I ran into a couple things that might help others out. Sorry I could not figure out how to insert picts into the body of the thread.

Image one is the rack right out of the box

Image two and three, the rack is in three section there are attached by allen head bolts. the fit can be tight but work out if you take your time.

Image four and five, the roof caps removed I found it took a 10mm socket wrench to remove . Sergio at bajaracks said that these can be tough to remove, my can right off. The bolts have a washer attached that has a rubberized washer that covers the threads. Remove these for the Mounting Brackets.

See the post below

Image six is a better view of the rubber washers removed from there metal washer.

Image seven. Take the rubber washer and fix it into the mounting bracket holes. They are a perfect fit

Image eight, a dab of silicon sealant for the threads

Image nine, all the brackets get mounted, they look a little odd in position. My wife helped me light the rack onto the brackets and the rest is just nuts and bolts.

Nice job! Do you have any larger pics?
I have mine in transit to mount onto my SandStorm as well.
I do have larger picts but every time I tried to insert them into the thread it said they were too big. I tried resizing too.

You will have much better luck w/ imageshack or photobucket. You can put better pictures on there and there also won't be a imagestamp.

Got your email! Thanks for the hi-res pics! :)
That'll tide me over until tomorrow when the rack arrives.

Guess I'll have to be SS #2 though with a BajaRack!
